It is not a weight thing. I'm a big guy.
One major difference is that I run the steeps on full blown SL skis and the flats on GS skis. I have looked at results over the last three years, and it holds true that if I'm on a steep hill, I beat guys that beat me on the flats.
I will admit that I feel uncomfortable on the full GS skis initiating the turn.
Any thought would help...
